The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) in Composites Manufacture is a four-year postgraduate research programme, which integrates an industry-based research project with a taught programme in technical subjects related to composites materials, design, mechanics and manufacturing, as well as business skills and transferable skills training. Each EngD research project is designed around the sponsor company's research priorities. The EngD programme is run by the Industrial Doctorate Centre (IDC) in Composites Manufacture, which is embedded within the EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub. EngD students benefit from the use of cutting-edge equipment and expertise at the universities and at the National Composites Centre, which provides a world-class facility to bridge the gap between research and industrial application. The IDC aims to provide the UK composites manufacturing industry with EngD graduates who are equipped with the advanced technical and leadership skills required for effective adoption of new knowledge and technologies in composites manufacture. The relevant industry areas include aerospace, automotive, marine, wind energy and construction.
